Since Periscope enabled permanently saving broadcasts, I decided to give the platform another shot and streamed a short, 10 minute walk in New York when I got into the city yesterday afternoon.
I’m trying to figure out if there’s a place for both Facebook Live and Periscope. I’ve been trying them both, but neither is primetime yet. A differentiator will be whether, when Facebook Live launches in-app, it results in strangers joining live streams in the same way they do on Periscope. It’s an enormous part of what makes Periscope fun—the interactivity of a stream from questions, comments, and requests from people you don’t know.
In the stream from New York, I did a short walk through the edge of Central Park specifically because someone in the stream asked to see more.
